Peer Support for new students

Peer Support sessions were successfully completed during Term 1 where Year 11 students, trained as Peer Leaders worked with new students transitioning into Years 5&7.

The Peer Support program is an invaluable program at St Pius X College supporting and connecting new students to the culture and fabric of the College, and their older, wiser and more experienced fellow students. The Year 11 Peer Leaders and their chosen 'buddy groups' participate in weekly sessions, developing new skills and working together, full of encouragement and motivation. Strong bonds form throughout the program and the Year 11 students develop leadership skills as they mentor and guide their younger buddies.
